Vontaze attended Centennial High School and was part of the Huskies football team; they would win a state championship and a CIF title during his time there. He led the Huskies in tackles, sacks, interceptions, and fumble recoveries during his senior year, earned All-American honors and was ranked as a five star recruit. He was also listed as the number one inside linebacker prospect for college football.
Burfict committed to the University of Southern California Trojans but then switched to Arizona State. However, he didn’t play in 2009 due to his need to meet academic standards. He joined the team in the 2010 season and performed well, leading to him being named a Freshman All-American, continuing during his sophomore season. In 2010, he had some issues due to unsportsmanlike conduct, but still produced on the field. During his junior season, he was set to take over as the leader of the Sun Devils defense, but was inconsistent, so he dropped out from study too.
Vontaze joined the 2012 NFL Draft and was projected to be a high pick in the draft. However, numerous problems during his junior season both on and off the field caused concern for many teams.
He also had a disappointing performance at the NFL Combine so went undrafted, but was then signed by the Cincinnati Bengals. He managed to make the roster and played in 16 games, starting in 14. He had several issues in 2013 but led the NFL in tackles, leading him to a Pro Bowl selection, his potential net worth also likely to increase, largely due to the NFL Performance-Based Pay program, and signed a four year extension with the Bengals the following season. He continued to create several issues in the next few years and was eventually suspended for three games in the 2016 season, due to an altercation during the AFC Wild Card Round. These repeated actions have caused him numerous fines over the course of his playing career. Despite that, his net worth is likely to increase as he continues playing with the Bengals.
For his personal life, there is no public information about his private life – he is believed to be still single. It is known that Burfict has a half-brother who played college football. His father was a drug dealer and gang member who spent most of his time incarcerated while Vontaze was growing up – not a great role model. His mother remarried and moved to Corona.
